Did You Know that, according to the Activity Rankings function of the CEELMDirect website, nine law firms in Central and Eastern Europe got off to an exceptionally strong start in 2023, with five client matters or more reported on by CEE Legal Matters in the first month of the year alone?

That group is led by Clifford Chance, CMS, and Schoenherr, all of which confirmed working on eight client matters reported by CEE Legal Matters in January 2023. They were followed closely by Sorainen, which was included in seven CEELM reports of client matters in the first month of the new year, and Dentons, which worked on six. Cobalt, Kinstellar, and Kocian Solc Balastik – the only national champion on the list – each worked on five client matters reported by CEELM in January.

Want to see which client matters these firms worked on, or which other firms worked on deals reported by CEELM in January of 2023 – or any other time period? Visit CEELMDirect.com, the world’s only truly dynamic legal directory, and find out!
